Many Disney films have shattered our childhood and even our adult lives. Indeed, the big-eared company has this incredible ability to awaken the magic and, most importantly, make it spring back. After Mulan, Dumbo or Peter Pan, Walt Disney Studios are working to bring this old franchise back to the fore …
Witches are making a comeback
In the 90s, a trio of crazy witches appeared in the cinema. They called themselves the Sanderson sisters. However, it will be necessary to wait a while for them to become mythical characters from the Disney company. After they experienced their small success in 1993, it is the multiple TV shows of the film Hocus Pocus that give our three witches this special charisma.
Since then, the film has been broadcast in a loop on the antennas during every Halloween period, especially on the US side. With this success, the trio of actresses could never reunite in a film in the franchise.
But it wouldn’t take long! During Disney’s National Streaming Day, the company announced some news about the famous Hocus Pocus sequel that has been confirmed for some time. This should represent a plot close to the story developed in the first part. The Sanderson sisters are then called into a modern Salem that is overrun with ugly witches.
While you wait for the release …
In order to embody the flagship protagonists of the franchise, Disney has decided to bet on nostalgia. We will then find the first three actresses, Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Katy Najimy, in the role of the three witches.
However, the orders for the film change hands. Adam Shankman will become executive producer and will make way for Anne Fletcher (The Proposition). The new director seems particularly enthusiastic about this idea.
I’m so grateful to be able to help bring these witches back to life, and working with my Disney friends makes it even more special. This movie is for everyone from fans who grew up with the first movie to the next generation of viewers. I’m in such a hurry to get started.
The Hocus Pocus 2 film is slated for release on Disney + in 2022. As you will understand, Disney is once again giving great importance to cinemas by making this sequel only available through its streaming service.
